7 tips from doctors on how to avoid

The International Agency for Research on Cancer at the WHO compiled a list of the strongest carcinogens. They are almost 100% probability accelerate the formation of cancer, according to health info with reference to infoprostir.te.ua.

You do not want to get cancer? Listen to authoritative advice.

1. Do not smoke

This bad habit in 70-90% of cases becomes a cause of lung cancer and larynx. The more cigarettes smoked per day and longer smoking history, the younger the age at which people began to "tar", the higher the risk of the disease. It was found that those who smoked more than a pack a day of cigarettes, the risk of developing lung cancer 15-25 times higher than in non-smokers, while the hard-core smokers - 60 times. And for our light cigarettes more dangerous than cigar or pipe. Do not bring less harm to the so-called "feminine" cigarette. Menthol contained in some of them, dilates blood vessels and bronchi absorption of harmful substances is enhanced.

2. Limit the time spent on the open sun

This is especially true for children. Experts advise not to sunbathe more than 15-30 minutes a day, at the same time it is necessary to use sunscreen. Otherwise, the risk of skin cancer increases significantly.

3. Maintain a healthy weight

Some studies have shown a link between obesity and cancer of the colon and rectum, gall bladder, pancreas and breast. According to the US National Cancer Institute, more than 3% of all cancers are related to being overweight.

4. Eat right

Eat plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid products from recycled red meat: not so long ago, the WHO has made them in the first, the most dangerous group of carcinogens. Statistics confirmed by research, scares: only 50 grams of processed red meat (1 sausage or a couple of pieces of bacon), but every day, 18% increased risk of cancer of the colon and rectum. Smoked too good do not bring. They contain benzopyrene - a product of combustion, which gives the same taste of "haze". And this substance triggers cancer. A large number of benzopyrene in foods may trigger the development of tumors of the stomach, intestines and pancreas.

5. Be physically active

The results of more than 40 studies conducted in different countries have shown that people who lead a sedentary lifestyle, often develops oncology. The 70000 inactive patients had been diagnosed with lung cancer, colon cancer and endometrial cancer. Meanwhile, for the prevention of cancer is enough to stand up, walk, work out in fitness at least 1.5 hours per day.

6. Limit the amount of alcohol

It also causes cancer. Not in itself - and that in which it is converted in the body. It is primarily the acetaldehyde resulting from the cleavage of ethanol. As a consequence - tumors in the stomach, liver, mouth, pharynx, larynx. English-language studies usually use the concept of conditional portion, equal to 033 ml of beer, glass of wine, a glass of spirits or 20 grams of pure alcohol. The maximum permissible dose of scientists - two conditional drink per day. Such an amount of acetaldehyde body displays itself. However, the lower alcohol, the better.

7. Monitor the level of radon in indoor

This radioactive gas formed from uranium, which, in turn, "lives" in the rocks and soil. International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified radon as a strong carcinogen, and found him guilty in the development of lung cancer. According to some reports, the proportion of disease attributable to radon range from 6 to 15%. In our house it falls through the cracks in the concrete floor-wall junctions, gaps in the floor, through the sewage and drainage pipes. Most radon in basements and first floors of homes. Above the third floor, its concentration in the air is usually low. By the way, reduce its easy: you just need to ventilate the room more often.
